The Future Market is a pop-up shop that imagines what a grocery store and its products will look like in the year 2065 -- almost 50 years from now. The pop-up grocery store doesn't exist yet, but will be open in New York City next year.

A group of designers are collaborating with food industry professionals to bring The Future Market to the public. The team conceptualizes the 2065 grocery story to have a digital food ID that informs the retail space of your allergies, preferences and diet requirements. A touch screen could let you order the items you need; perhaps your produce will come from hydroponic farms. The team also imagined fake groceries inside, including Crop Crisps.
